Cannot discriminate against adopted son when it comes to compassionate appointment: Karnataka High Court

The Court was seized of a plea filed by an adopted son challenging the decision of the Director of Prosecution rejecting his application for compassionate appointment to his deceased father’s post.

His father was working in the office of a public prosecutor before his death in March 2018.

The bench noted that the petitioner-son was adopted by his deceased father as his biological son had died in a road accident in November 2010. It also noted that the deceased is survived by his wife and a daughter, who is differently-abled.

“In such a situation, it is the adopted son who was so adopted by the deceased to take care of the family on account of the death of a natural-born son who has applied for a compassionate appointment,” the bench noted.

Therefore, the bench ordered the authorities to reconsider the petitioner’s application for job on compassionate basis.
